This week, we are devoting our Long Reads section to social media controversy.
It’s not that we are huge fans of controversy for the sake of controversy — au contraire* — but we perceive controversy as a way of thinking, and developing opinions, about specific issues.
With this in prospect, here are three articles we found particularly relevant:
- Seth Ferranti on Vice explaining why prisons should let inmates use social media.
- Oliver Staley on Quartz depicting Twitter as a cultural success but a business failure.
- Cliff Watson on Medium standing by the fact that teens aren’t abandoning social media.
*We prefer spreading love with cute kitten pictures like this one:
Happy reading 😉
